Gollem is a Web-based file manager that provides the ability to fully manage a hierarchical file system stored in a variety of backends such as a SQL database, as part of a real filesystem, or on FTP, Samba or SSH servers. It supports uploading and downloading of files, basic file operations, permissions support, and MIME recognition and viewing of files through the Horde MIME library. It is fully internationalized and translatable.
fio is an I/O tool meant to be used both for benchmark and stress/hardware verification. It has support for 13 different types of I/O engines (sync, mmap, libaio, posixaio, SG v3, splice, null, network, syslet, guasi, solarisaio, and more), I/O priorities (for newer Linux kernels), rate I/O, forked or threaded jobs, and much more. It can work on block devices as well as files. fio accepts job descriptions in a simple-to-understand text format. Several example job files are included. fio displays all sorts of I/O performance information, including complete IO latencies and percentiles. Fio is in wide use in many places, for both benchmarking, QA, and verification purposes. It supports Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OS X, OpenSolaris, AIX, HP-UX, and Windows.
trash-cli is a command line interface to the FreeDesktop.org trashcan. It implements the FreeDesktop.org trash specification. For each trashed file, it will remember the name, original path, date of deletion, and permissions. It interoperates with KDE and GNOME Trash, and is CLI compatible with the rm command.
Proxy filesystem for FUSE is an implmentation of a filesystem that resolves symlinks and displays them as real folders as well as doing a few more things. For example, it is possible to point a folder or a single file at a file in the user's home directory. Also, it is possible to hide files and directories from the folder listing.
Tagsistant is a semantic filesystem for Linux and BSD kernels. It uses directories as tags and allows file tagging by simply putting files inside desired tag directories. The path you are walking by is your query, e.g. tagsistant/tag1/AND/tag2/OR/tag3/AND/tag2/. Being a low level interface, a filesystem can be instantly used by shell users, file managers, or CGI. A plug-in architecture is under development to add autotagging functionality for common files like .mp3, .ogg, .jpeg, .html, and .xml. A transparent ontology engine is also under development to allow users create a relationship schema between directories.
Magma is an experimental network filesystem for Linux and BSD kernels based on a distributed hash table. Each object stored is called a "flare" and is managed using its SHA1 hash key. Flares can be moved as opaque objects from node to node and requests can be proxied through the network transparently to the user. Its goals are scalability, redundancy, data availability, compliance with POSIX, and basic encryption on the user side.
SpotLook is a graphical interface to Mac OS X Leopard's Spotlight desktop search engine. It features tracks, which are timelines showing results according to their date. Tracks can created, edited, and customized, and include a search scope and attributes to search for. Found items can be viewed with Quick Look or revealed in the Finder.
